More Than 200 Arrested During Miami Hip Hop Fest
CBS MIAMI ^ | 5/28/12

Posted on 05/28/2012 5:40:46 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

About 250,000 people are in South Beach for Memorial Day weekend and the hip hop festival known as Urban Beach Week.

The festival is known for its over the top parties and fashions. Seventy-nine people were arrested Saturday, bringing the total number to 228. That’s compared to 107 people arrested the same Saturday last year.

One Miami station is using video of very sophisticated, well dressed "urban music fans" enjoying a cocktail at a south beach eatery...in other words, ABOUT 5% of the population that shows up for "Hip Hop" weekend.

The other 95% are not sophisticated, well dressed young professionals, believe me.

The local Miami media babblers are trying to pretend the Memorial Day crowd isn't a threat or a problem...as if 228 arrests in 3 days is an IMPROVEMENT.

The Miami media is ignoring the truth just like the national media ignores the truth about the crime in Chicago.

There are TWO reasons arrests numbered "only" 228 this year:

Obama's disastrous economy kept gas prices high so Eric Holder's "people" couldn't populate Miami Beach in the same numbers as before.

Also, the COPS cracked down on the thugs with extra patrols, a DUI checkpoint, and scanning license plates for possible wanted individuals.

Reminds me of Freaknik in Atlanta’s days of yore...I used to get a kick up on I575 watching the State Troopers and local police grab the choice spots like the Northwestern bears by the rivers and catch the salmon as they swam upstream....damned glad they did.

Once a group of fine young college females, Freaknik-bound, passed my wife and threw out a coup of ice at her windshield. Attempted murder in my book. I’d have shot back.

"I’d have shot back."

First, the "pick" maneuver, sending them backwards and spinning at 70-80mph. Then, once their vehicle comes to rest, then open up with something large and loud. Extremely loud.

Guaranteed to cure the immediate problem, and prevent future ones.

America is waking up to Holder’s crowd, while the Media is still sleeping.

Anytime a city has a gathering of “Urban Youths” it ends in either gunshots or a riot and/or both.
Those gatherings are to be advoided by normal people at all costs.
Remember: Whites are not welcome there. Any white person that is foolish enough to attend a function such as these are inviting a beating that will being captured on taxpayer cellphones and be seen on Youtube.

For the Miamians, it would be adviable to review Derbysire’s Rules when the annual thug migration occurs:

I think “infestation” is more accurate than “migration”.... just sayin’

Oh what joy, a gathering of Trayvon wannabes. Horror shows like this give us an idea of the worst America has to offer, and the media rushes to glamorize it.

“I think the police presence is a little overwhelming,” John Greene said. “I believe that some of the barricades that they have, it’s not as personal as it used to be.”

"overwhelming police presence"..."not as personal as it used to be".

OK, good observations, good observations. Now, I suppose it's too much of a leap for you to discern EXACTLY WHY this is happening?

"Racism"? No, try again...

"Police brutality?" Oooh, not quite. Thank you for playing!

Perhaps changed the title as not to offend the thug-fest goers.

Retitled “Arrests, Complaints Down At Urban Beach Week”. Do not want to provoke any aspiring rappers.

MIAMI (CBS4) – Although he was one of the early pioneers of Miami Beach’s Memorial Day hip hop extravaganza, even Luther Campbell says he no longer makes his way to South Beach during that weekend because it’s become too rowdy.

“Just walk the streets, get drunk, be rowdy, go to jail,” Campbell told CBS4’s Jim DeFede in describing what the event has become. “Me personally I wouldn’t even go over there. I haven’t been there probably in the last two or three years. “

Campbell has a long history with the affair. Initially the weekend started in the Nineties as a fashion event for designers geared toward the African-American community. It continued to build over the years, with as many as 250,000 people descending on Miami Beach for the long weekend.

Snip

“It should not be on our streets, it’s just devastating,” Tapia said of the street party. “There’s looting. I took pictures of dozens of cars windows that have been bashed in. There have been sexual acts in the street. I’ve seen women get groped and they just keep walking; there is nothing they can do.

“We have to be serious,” Tapia continued. “Due to the violence and the hoodlumness to this event, it tarnishes the city’s image. I’ve seen tourists say they will never come back.”

We got caught in the first Freaknik while going

to Commerce for the drag races.

We considered ourselves lucky getting out alive

Then going back to Nashville after the races being

passed by car loads of the thugs all the way home

They acted like wild animals on the hunt
